Replacement for pine?

I'm upgrading my home system and am looking for advice
on replacing the mail/news program pine.

It must run on a terminal, be free,
be good to skim a lot of mailling lists.
I like the curses menu of folders that
pine has, I don't find that in mutt (?!).

I've used readnews, rn, vn, trn, strn, mail, mailx and pine.
A trn that deals with mail would suit me fine.

I don't know emacs, but would consider learning,
for a good combined news and mail handler.

I've been using procmail to sort mail.

I can't fathom how anyone uses Navigator to
view news.

Thanks for any advice.
